Known as the "Crossroads of the World", Times Square is a dazzling intersection famed for its lavish neon signs, grand theaters, and pulsating crowds. Whether you're on your way to a Broadway show, a buzzing bar or one of the family-friendly restaurant that line the streets, look out for iconic structures like the Paramount Building and One Times Square – site of the celebrated New Year's Eve ball drop.
One of the art capitals of the world, Chelsea has literally hundreds of renowned galleries to explore, including the Gagosian and the Gladstone. A taste of New York life can be had at Chelsea Market, a vast warren of artisan food stalls. The High Line, an elevated promenade, offers fantastic views of this upscale neighbourhood, while the Chelsea Piers – intended destination of the Titanic – is a great Manhattan landmark.
Think "New York City" and the sights of Midtown East will spring to mind . There's the towering Art Deco splendor of the Chrysler Building, the gleaming edges of the Empire State Building, and the opulence of Grand Central – arguably the world's most famous train station. For top flight shopping, make your way to Saks Fifth Avenue, and you can even walk the corridors of power at the UN Headquarters.
Anyone visiting the Big Apple will want to explore Midtown West – this is where the razzle dazzle of Times Square is, after all. Take in a show on Broadway or, if you fancy giving your mind a workout, take a tour of the celebrated Museum of Modern Art (or MoMA). And when your tummy starts rumbling, check out the French brasseries, sushi bars and Russian eateries on Restaurant Row.
Sandwiched between the winding Hudson River and lush Central Park, Manhattan's Upper West Side is home to New York's most exclusive high-rise apartments, as well as Columbia University. The American Museum of Natural History makes it a history-buff's dream, while the Lincoln Center showcases everything from opera to jazz. A stroll around Riverside Park in full bloom is a fine way to spend a sunny day.

we loved this hotel! we were here just 1-2 months after they completed renovation, so it was a real treat to find it “new”, clean and everything running almost like clockwork (though their hot water broke down on our last morning! :p but they got it fixed by the afternoon). we took the room with 2 double beds, which was a luxury - big and spacious, not crammed at all! drainage in the attached toilet/shower worked perfectly fine, whereas in another hotel we stayed at last year, drainage was simply awful. sure hope seton hotel maintains these new standards for a long time!! after we checked out, we had a late night flight, and the hotel staff were kind enough to allow us to use the shared toilets and also loaned us towels so we could take a final shower before the long flight home. there was 1 drawback in the room, which was the really loud aircon, something which we have read quite a few other complaints about before - since it was late fall, we didn't really need it, but i think in summer the noise might get unbearable... it would be great if they could overhaul their units! there is also only the 1 small lift in the building which moves a little slow, but you just need a little patience and everyone can get up/down :) location was perfect, just 2-3 blocks from grand central, with many choices of eateries, cafes and drugstores within walking distance, extremely convenient! we would definitely stay here again (if the standards of the hotel are maintained!).

1) Great conveinent location around Time's Square. There's also a subway around the corner so it's easy to get to places.
2) Although the room was a tad small (especially the toliet), it had a cosy vibe. And a modern feel.
3) Beds were cushy and comfortable
4) They had an ipod dock with an alarm clock. Great for conveniently charging your phone and listening to music.
5) Doors felt secure and safe.
6) Great unobstructed view
7) Area is pretty quiet at night, so you can sleep well. But abit of noise from the traffic sirens just before midnight.
1) Really small. No space for big luggages. We had to unpack our stuff in the drawers and place our 2 big luggages in the closet and on the floor.
2) No gym in the hotel so we had to go to their sister hotel nearby to gym. A little inconvenient.
3) No Kettle, fridge or tea/coffee. Which was a bummer cos it was winter and we wanted to drink hot water to stay warm.
4) No idea how to operate the heater. it would just suddenly rattle and turn on by itself. Becos of this room was sometimes a bit stuffy so we had to open the window a bit to let cool air in.
Overall, i felt it was affordable and had a good location. I would come back to this hotel again becos i like the cosy room and conveinence. Anyway, if you're visiting new york, it's unlikely u'll stay in your room all the time so this works perfectly. It's good for couples or two people cos of small size..

This hotel has recently been renovated, rooms were a lil small but still comfortable enough to stay in. The bed was really comfy and made for a good night's sleep after a long day of sightseeing. The room and toilet was generally clean. However, there was no breakfast included and wifi doesn't come free. Had a lil trouble with the air-conditioning, but it was fixed within the day. The staff was quite friendly and welcoming and the concierge didn't hesitate to help me out with booking of airport transfer, even though pick up was at another hotel. Overall, a great place to stay in and in a very good location too!
